When deciding how to clean your carpet, upholstery, or other surfaces in your home, consider steam cleaning.  Many homeowners and renters throughout the El Paso area have found that their home can be made much cleaner with help from Steamway Carpet Cleaning.

Steam Cleaning vs. Traditional Cleaning

When you clean carpets using traditional methods, this could include vacuuming or shampooing the carpet.  Vacuuming only cleans the surface dirt, it does not get down deep. Further, vacuuming is not going to remove stains from the carpet.  Shampooing can sometimes remove stains, but the shampoos that are used can contain chemicals that soak into the carpet and that affect indoor air quality and health.  Shampooing a carpet also involves getting the fibers wet, which can be damaging over time. Furthermore, a wet carpet can also take a long time to dry. Professional steam cleaning, on the other hand, works to clean through the use of vaporized water that is released at high pressures through a hose or nozzle.   

Major Benefits of Professional Carpet Cleaning

With steam cleaning, there is very little water that actually goes onto your carpet so you don’t have to wait hours or days until the carpet dries before you can walk on it again.  Steam works at very high heats to break down dirt so removal is easier.  A more effective carpet cleaning is possible with a steam cleaner, especially as mildew, mold, allergens, dust mites, staph, and other harmful allergens or contaminants are killed by the steam.  For more information on how steam cleaning works, contact  Steamway Carpet Cleaning today!
